Global Connect

Connecting Edmonton to the World

The University Hospital Foundation, in partnership with Janssen Inc. (part of the Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson), and the Government of Alberta, is pleased to announce the establishment of Global Connect – a secure videoconferencing system that will connect Alberta health research, innovation researchers and entrepreneurs to the J&J Innovation community.

Global Connect will enhance the potential of Alberta’s research and innovation leaders by providing access to commercialization programs available within J&J Innovation ecosystem and JLABS tenants around the globe. These programs will increase the knowledge of Albertans about commercialization of health technologies and make a defined connection between the Alberta health innovation ecosystem and the J&J Innovation community. Alberta will be the only jurisdiction in the world to be connected to J&J Innovation, without an actual J&J site.

With the support of the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, Global Connect will be installed in the Katz Centre, on the University of Alberta campus - a hub of medical innovation for University of Alberta entrepreneurs.  The Global Connect system will be co-managed by the University Hospital Foundation and the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry
